My name is Selena G. About 20 years ago, I had a white boyfriend named Matt Z. We loved each other very much and I could see us married. My parents and brother did not like him from the start and always gave me a hard time about him. I should not have been surprised because in my home there wasalways hatred of white people.
Walking down the aisle, between my two mothers – Rose, the woman who’d given birth to me, and Renee Loux who’d adopted me, I couldn’t have been happier. My identical twin sister Teyolla, Tee for short, and I had talked about this day from as early as I could remember. My only sadness was that Tee, 20, couldn’t watch me get married, because she was waiting outside the door, preparing to get hitched herself.
Crystal shares with IMF. This is my husband Andrew. We met on November 7, 2014 online. Within 2 days, Andrew and I knew that we were soul mates and meant to be together. Andrew is a perfect gentleman and I could not asked for a better man. God was present and blessed our union as we got married on April 26, 2015. We are so deeply in love! I am so blessed to be married this wonderful man!
This super sweet video has been making the rounds on the Internet. Cancer survivor Zack proposes to his unsuspecting girlfriend Afi on her birthday.
I was just thinking of one of my Japanese girlfriends and this wedding announcement from the New York Times came to mind. The Japanese and Koreans have a long history of bad blood. This in part due to harsh rule during Japanese occupation of Korea, comfort women, racism, mistrust and hatred to name a few. This love story just goes to show that some can still find love and happiness in spite of the bitterness between the nationalities/races.
Lynne & David Haahr
After speaking with Lynne Haahr, I could only shake my head in amazement with her cheer leading-like promotion of interracial relationships. She and her husband David are a true couple of the world. Could Lynne have known growing up as a military brat (as she calls it) that she would be living in some of the world’s most exotic places? Could she have known that her job, choice of mate (and his job) would expose her to life only dreamt of by others? Maybe, because it is second nature and with her award winning attitude, it falls right into place. Lynne’s is a wonderful “Living Well” story.
